I had an amazing time at the Etsy Pop up event I attended a couple of weeks ago, and met so many talented and friendly local artists. I’ll admit… I totally geeked out the entire time I was there. There was so much eye candy - photography, letter pressed cards, upcycled furniture, laser cut posters, and heirloom ceramics etc. All the handcrafted goods for sale were so unique and lovely, it was hard to decide what to purchase. I bought some really beautiful stuff; here is a peek at what I got.
